Intertrek Pty Ltd — Fixe Climbing PLX Hanger-1

Hanger ID Process

Identifying features


What are the defects?

Affected products have a very high and unusual tendency towards oxidation in marine environments.

What are the hazards?

Highly corroded anchors may fail and although there is redundancy in climbing anchor systems, injury may occur.

What should consumers do?

Intertrek advises customers and consumers to inspect any product not yet installed for the affected batch number and to return affected product for a full refund or replacement with non-affected product.

For any anchors already installed, it is very difficult to ascertain the batch number and so Intertrek advises end users to inspect anchors for any signs of rust or corrosion before use.
